For those of you who don’t know, Maven is an awesome build tool. It uses centralized repositories to share build artifacts. Right now there is a problem, where if a repository is hacked, malicious code could be injected into those artifacts and distributed by other builds. Lots of folks object to using maven solely due to this possibility. It’s a good thing that the maven teams seems to be working on fix those problems.
